Obama '08: 'I Take the Constitution Very Seriously,' Unlike Bush

By Matt Vespa | February 14, 2014 | 12:45pm EST

Look up irony in the dictionary and you'll find Barack Obama. The president made it known before his 2014 State of the Union address that he plans to bypass Congress this year to push his agenda forward.

Does anyone remember when then-Senator Obama said he took the Constitution "very seriously?"

Yeah, that's right. In 2008, Obama was worried about George Bush bypassing Congress – and vowed to do something about it if he was elected president later that year.

You know I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously – the biggest problems that were facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reverse when I'm President of the United States of America.

Congratulations, President Obama, you're now George W. Bush.
